The French Quarter, also known as the Historic District, is the oldest section of the City of New Orleans. Founded in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville. Today, the district is commonly known as the French Quarter, or simply “the Quarter,” a reflection of the diminished French influence after the Louisiana Purchase. The district is a National Historic Landmark, housing many historical buildings that were constructed in the late 1700s during a period of Spanish rule. The French Quarter is a prime destination for tourists and local residents, and a growing spot for restaurants, artists, and events.
